McCulloch chainsaw auto oiler

Posted by glynn z7 MS (My Page) on

My McCulloch (model 600134140)20" chainsaw's automatic oiler has completely stopped working. Also, the manual oiler works, but is very hard to depress - about wear your thumb out trying to push the button in. Seems like the manual oiler becomes harder to push as the saw warms up.

I have tried blowing compressed air into the oil outlet and rinsed out the oil reservoir with fuel in case there is trash in there.

Anyone got any ideas? Thanks - Glynn

That model doesn't compute, are you sure it isn't the serial number? A little more information would help.

RE: McCulloch chainsaw auto oiler

Sorry, I did miss the model number by one digit.

Here are the numbers listed on the ID plate:


This was sold in a store as a refurbished saw, in case that makes a difference. It is probably about 12 years old. - Thanks
